Most people do not understand (and the media doesn’t tell us) that we have already admitted tens of thousands of Afghan supposed helpers as I pointed out here in 2019. It is a good thing I took a screenshot of the data because it seems to be missing now from the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center.
First, let me say, I haven’t been doing my usual extensive reading of refugee news (I am taking a break, or was taking a break!), so you won’t be getting any deep analysis, but I can’t ignore the breaking news.
On top of the hundreds of thousands streaming into America across our borders now we will have the airlift of Afghanistan to America put on steroids, or at least that is what Biden is signaling.
They are truly changing America by changing the people and it couldn’t be more clear than right now.
As for Trump, sometimes he doesn’t know when to shut up!
Trump Endorses Prioritizing Afghan Refugees Amid Series Of Attacks On Biden
Former President Donald Trump on Monday endorsed the idea of taking in Afghan refugees who assisted the U.S. military and are now under threat as the Taliban takes control of the country, a departure from his long held stance on refugees that appears primarily aimed at attacking President Joe Biden.
The U.S. reportedly aims to relocate as many as 30,000 Afghans who are in the special immigrant visa application process, a small portion of the estimated 88,000 seeking entry, though the State and Defense Departments said Sunday they have evacuated fewer than 2,000 thus far.
Trump’s stance on the Afghan refugees represents a break with some of his closest allies, like former aide Stephen Miller, who, echoing Trump’s long-held anti-immigrant views, has spoken out against taking in Afghan refugees.
Here is Miller’s tweet. He is right and Trump is wrong!
Refugee Contractors Heads Explode, Bash Biden
Meanwhile the Washington Post is reporting (via Religion News Service) that the State Department’s refugee resettlement contractors (paid by taxpayers on a per refugee client basis) are steaming mad over the debacle in Afghanistan.
They say Biden has moved too slowly to bring tens of thousands of Muslims out of Afghanistan to be placed in a town near you. (Like in Wisconsinwhere a Jewish resettlement contractor is jazzed to welcome Afghans.)
And, yes, they could very well end up in a town near you because housing is limited as America is being overrun.
Refugee aid groups criticize Biden for stumbles in evacuating ‘desperate’ Afghans
WASHINGTON (RNS) — As most Americans absorbed the shock of the Taliban’s full takeover of Afghanistan over the weekend, officials at Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service followed the rapidly deteriorating situation with resignation, knowing it could have gone differently.
In May, leaders at LIRS, one of several faith-based agencies contracted with the U.S. government to resettle refugees in the United States, sent a letter to the Biden administration requesting it remove Afghan civilians (and their families) who have worked with the U.S. before its planned troop withdrawal.
Anyone familiar with the “bureaucratic maze” that is the country’s Special Immigrant Visa process knew the State Department visa office wouldn’t be agile enough to respond to the urgent need for evacuations, said Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, president and CEO of LIRS.
“We’ve been screaming from the rooftops for months now that we need to get these allies to Guam or another U.S. territory,” Vignarajah said.
In June, most of those organizations — including LIRS, World Relief, Church World Service, the Episcopal Church (which resettles refugees through Episcopal Migration Ministries) and HIAS (founded as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) — urged President Joe Biden to implement plans to evacuate Afghan translators, soldiers, cultural advisers, embassy clerks and others who have worked with American armed forces, media or nonprofits and allies and to authorize as many SIVs as necessary to make that possible.
Keep reading, see what Mark Hetfield of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society says about the Biden administration and know that just in the last few days Hetfield was telling his people to press Secretary of State Antony Blinken to set the ceiling for refugees for the coming fiscal year at 125,000.
That would be 125,000 over and above the Special Immigrant Visas flown in from Afghanistan and the hundreds of thousand coming across our borders.
The 125,000 would come from other Muslim countries in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Apropos of nothing… Here is Hoochie Coochie Blinken—the man who helped bring us the Afghan disaster and will decide who your new neighbors will be!
Trump wants to protect the American worker first and foremost!
That is the gist of the news from an Epoch Timespiece published a couple of days ago. (Hat tip: Judy)
Trump to Tighten Immigration, Entry Standards if Reelected, Senior Adviser Says
President Donald Trump’s administration, if he is reelected, will toughen its stance onimmigrationand entry into the United States with the aim of protecting the wages and safety of Americans, a senior adviser to the president told NBC Newsin an interview on Oct. 29.
Stephen Miller, who noted that his remarks were being made only in his capacity as campaign adviser, said Trump’s second-term immigration agenda would involve “raising and enhancing the standard for entry” into the United States and cracking down on illegal immigration, including by tighter restrictions on work visas, stricter visa application screenings, banning “sanctuary cities,” and limiting the number of people granted asylum.
He said the measures would be accomplished through a combination of executive actions and legislation.
“In many cases, fixing these problems and restoring some semblance of sanity to our immigration programs does involve regulatory reform,” Miller said. “Congress has delegated a lot of authority … and that underscores the depth of the choice facing the American people.”
It is all about how Stephen Miller is a racist hatemonger. Citing a book published in August entitled, ‘Hatemonger: Stephen Miller, Donald Trump, and the White Nationalist Agenda’, we learn all about how racists/white nationalists are created.
‘HATEMONGER’ EXAMINES STEPHEN MILLER, THE EXTREMIST AT THE HEART OF TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE
COVID-19 allowed Trump and Miller to fulfill their dream of closing the U.S. Mexico border to asylum seekers; before the pandemic, federal asylum law made this impossible. They could now suspend refugee resettlement and the processing of green cards, slowing legal immigration under the guise of protecting American jobs.
Drawing on documents and over 150 interviews, Guerrero’s book covers Miller’s upbringing and his rise through right-wing media and into the White House, becoming Trump’s trusted advisor.
Miller hasn’t yet achieved his wish list on immigration policy. But as Guerrero explores in Hatemonger, it aligns alarmingly with that of white nationalists.
Now here is my favorite part:
In high school, Miller was mentored by conservative radio host Larry Elder and right-wing extremist David Horowitz. Drawn into Horowitz’s worldview, Miller “saw this country as a white-forged masterpiece, unfairly demonized by brown hordes,” Guerrero writes.
So we are told that Miller was mentored by a white nationalist named Larry Elder! Did Guerrero think her readers are too dumb and might not have a look at a picture of Elder?
All I can say is the Open Borders Marxists are scared to death! Four more years of Trump and Miller will make their heads explode. Fingers crossed!
Update November 17th: This publication is calling RRW a “conspiracy site” due to my tagline: They are changing America by changing the people!
A writer for a website calling itself Citizen Truthand claiming to be alternative news for free thinkers! reports on the latest attack on the President, his aide and us by the Southern Poverty Law Centercalling RRW a “fringe” anti-immigrant and white nationalist website.
I wasn’t going to bother with the latest broadsidefrom the SPLCin which a Breitbart writer who had been fired by the publication apparently (shamefully!) went to the SPLC with a trove of e-mails from Miller in 2015 and 2016 when Miller was a high level staffer for then Senator Jeff Sessions.
However, I thought you should know about this especially as the writer for Citizen Truth singles out RRW for special attention.
I’ll bet writer and ‘truth-teller,’ Peter Castagno, has never read any of RRW’s9,000 plus posts.
Oh, and let me be clear, I am very happy to learn that my work was being shared at high levels in Washington, DC.
But, before I get to that, hereis what Citizen Truth (hilariously) says about its publication:
Citizen Truth is an independent and alternative media organization dedicated to finding the truth, ending the left-right paradigm and widening the scope of viewpoints represented in media and our daily conversations.
Have the “free thinkers” and ‘truth-tellers’ have no shame? How can they write that s*** and then publish this:
Dem Leaders Call For Stephen Miller To Resign After Proof Of White Nationalism
Democratic leaders are calling for White House senior adviser Stephen Miller’s resignation after new evidence of his extreme white nationalist views was published by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SLPC) on Tuesday. Critics argue the evidence proves that Miller, the chief architect of the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown, is projecting his racist views into deliberately cruel policies.
“Stephen Miller, Trump’s architect of mass human rights abuses at the border (including child separation & detention camps w/ child fatalities) has been exposed as a bonafide white nationalist,” tweeted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “He’s still at the White House shaping US immigration policy. Miller must resign.”
The SLPC’s investigative report is based on a collection of over 900 emails from 2015-2016 that showcase the relationship between Miller and the far-right website Breitbart. Miller, a staffer under then-Senator Jeff Sessions at the time, demonstrates an obsessive focus on race and immigrant related issues in the correspondence, mentioning the themes in more than 720 of the emails as he shares ideas and sources to influence the hard-right website’s 2016 election coverage.
Miller provides links to fringe white nationalist and anti-immigrant websites like VDare, American Renaissance, and Refugee Resettlement Watch to former Breitbart writer Katie McHugh in the emails, and praises the explicitly racist book “Camp of the Saints,”telling McHugh someone at Breitbart should write an article connecting its grotesque depiction of immigrants to the Pope’s pro-refugee rhetoric.
The Leftwing never quits, and that is what I wanted to try to get through to all of you when I wrote my post about community organizing here on Thursday.
Never forget that anyone who suggests there must be limits to immigration and that reforms are needed will be labeled by the Leftists and their media lackeys as “white nationalists,” “racists,” or “haters” of some sort, so toughen your hide!
Note to Peter: I know you are trying to look really cool on that horse, but you need a riding lesson or two. Just saying!
I’vealready reported that our US military wants to give tickets to America to more Iraqi and Afghan ‘refugees’ as rewards for helping us in those long wars—one more reason not to go to war in Islamic terrorist-producing countries.
And, I would like to know for how many years after we’ve ended a war are we responsible for moving their nationals to our towns and cities?
See the staggering numbers of Special Immigrant Visa holders we have admitted from Afghanistan and Iraq already! Over 56,000 from Afghanistan and over 18,000 from Iraq!
Why doesn’t NBC report that information?
Here NBCcharacterizes this year’s battle over the annual presidential determination as one of Stephen Miller vs. America’s mighty military!
Pentagon is last holdout as Stephen Miller tries to slash number of refugees allowed in U.S.
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is fighting against proposals by White House officials to drastically cut the number of refugees allowed into the U.S., and has called for reserving visas for Iraqis who risked their lives working for U.S. troops, according to five people familiar with the plan.
In internal discussions, the Defense Department has expressed opposition to any further reductions to the current annual ceiling of 30,000 for refugee admissions, which already is at a historic low for the 40-year-old U.S. refugee program, the sources told NBC News.
Defense officials also proposed setting aside about 6,000 slots specifically for Iraqi applicants who worked for U.S. troops as interpreters or in other jobs, according to one current U.S. official, one former U.S. official and three refugee advocates briefed on the deliberations.
The Pentagon has emerged as the lone voice in internal debates defending the traditional role of a refugee program overseen by the State Department, an unusual twist that reflects the administration’s aggressive stance on immigration and refugees.
The Pentagon’s stance is at odds with White House senior adviser Stephen Miller — the architect of the president’s sweeping crackdown on immigration— and his allies at the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security, who are all proposing deep cuts or even a halt to refugee admissions for the next fiscal year starting in October.
It is not likely to be zero as the White House floated here in July sending the refugee industrial complex into panic.
The White House, however, is weighing one option that would reduce overall refugee admissions — possibly lowering the cap to 15,000 or lower — while setting aside a certain number of openings for Iraqi applicants, similar to what the Pentagon has proposed, the sources said. [Someone must be blabbing to the media!—ed]
Keep reading and then see this:
Evangelical activist Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council and a strong supporter of President Trump, said earlier this month he was “alarmed” that the administration was considering more dramatic reductions in refugee admissions.
In a letter in July, nine evangelical leaders appealed to the administration to back up its frequent public statements on religious freedom and helping persecuted Christians abroad by raising the cap on refugee admissions.
Of course, Perkins wants more Christians, but those the military wants are mostly Muslims!
Then here, without mentioning that World Relief is one of nine federally-funded(and UN approved) refugee contractors that can’t survive without a steady flow of your tax dollars to their coffers, NBC quotes them as a representative of concerned evangelicals in America.
“The drastic decline in the number of refugees we are resettling in the U.S. is really troubling and it goes against everything that we believe about what our faith teaches us,” said Jenny Yang, vice president for advocacy and policy at World Relief, an evangelical organization that helps resettle refugees in the United States.
“It’s extremely concerning that the administration is not heeding the views of a lot of evangelicals.”
